Diversity and Inclusion in Science (DAIS) Minicourse

Constituency: Grad students
Office: Biosciences

A minicourse that provides an introduction to the social science literature on factors contributing to gender disparities in the scientific workplace (e.g. implicit bias and stereotype threat). Discussions focus on steps that individuals and institutions can take to promote the advancement of women and other underrepresented groups in science, and thus promote the advancement of science.
